Giuseppe Compagnini

Università di Catania, Italy

In 1989 Giuseppe Compagnini obtained the degree in Physics at the University of Catania and in 1993 the Ph.D. in Solid State Physics working at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ("Laboratorium für Festkörperphysik") on Raman spectroscopy in Rare Earth compounds and semiconductor thin films. In 1993 he has obtained a post-doc position at the Italian National Council for Research (CNR) working on silicon/carbon based alloys. From 1995 to 1996 he was consultant of ST-Microelectronics. He is actually Associate Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Catania. Author of more than 150 papers on international peer reviewed journals (ISI) devoted to the fields of ion-matter interaction, carbon based nanomaterials and thin films deposition, has received more than 2000 citation with an h-index of 25. His research group is involved in the deposition and characterization of nanostructured thin films for optical and electronic applications. Expertise: -- Surface and interface analysis (photoelectron spectroscopy, surface enhanced spectroscopy) Thin film physics and chemistry. Deposition and modification by physical approaches (laser ablation, ion irradiation) -- Thin film physics and chemistry. Characterization by vibrational and electronic spectroscopy (Raman spectroscopy, infrared absorption, HR photoelectron spectroscopy) -- Innovative nanoscale materials by using physical and chemical approaches. Includes: carbon based materials (carbon nanotubes and nanowires, graphene related materials), metal nanoparticles and nanoparticles’ assembly (core/shell structures and alloys)
